Huckleberry Road is an American Country group with rock and traditional country music roots formed by Robbie James and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Listen up to hear how they transitioned from a well known hard rock band to Reno country staples.

If you listened to the show you heard our call for murder songs. We aren’t kidding! I think… Regardless, send in your stuff. We will make that Reno murder song compilation happen. Thanks again to Huckleberry Road for hanging out with us this week. Check in next week for Cowboy Indian!

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. We’re sorry. This week we have Reno “doom, sludge, alterno-whatever metal” band Kanawha in the studio to fill your ears with, um, doom? Kanawha has been playing shows in Reno and Tahoe since May with their debut at Marianarchy. Catch them next at the Marianarchy Winter Ball benefiting Emily Reese this weekend at Jub Jub’s! Go hear some loud desert songs and drink for a good cause (as opposed to the other reasons you drink).

Avenue Q – A Totally Different Neighborhood

Well, hi, kids!

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E22 – Download Link

The cast of Avenue Q and their puppets

Do you like fun? We hope you like fun! You can spell fun, right? G-E-T-T-I-N-G-H-I-G-H spells fun! In an unprecedented show, we have a number of members of the cast from the Tahoe Players’  production of Avenue Q! Cast members Princeton, Kate Monster, Nicky and a couple of Bad Idea Bears join us for the show. They are an interesting bunch – a little on the creepy side though, and not just because they are puppets. Surprisingly, Nicky gets the lowest score on the quiz that we’ve ever had on the show EVER!

Later in the show, the wonderful puppeteer and acting talent of Sarah Turner (Girl Bad Idea Bear), Tarek Barghouti (Princeton), Melissa Barusch (Kate Monster), Joanna Dunlap (Nicky) and Shawna Hafen (Boy Bad Idea Bear) join us in the studio. They’re a great bunch and we had a lot of fun talking to them on the show and listening to some of their songs, as accompanied by friend of the show, Tristan Selzler, on the ivories.
